Message Tracking is expected to be used to determine the
status of undelivered e-mail upon request.  Tracking is used in
conjunction with Delivery Status Notifications (DSN) and Message
Disposition Notifications (MDN); generally, a message tracking request
will be issued only when a DSN or MDN has not been received within a
reasonable timeout period.

This memo defines a MIME content-type for message tracking
status in the same spirit as RFC 3464, "An Extensible Message Format
Delivery Status Notifications".  It is to be issued upon a request as
described in "Message Tracking Query Protocol".  This memo defines
only the format of the status information.  An extension to SMTP
to label messages for further tracking and request tracking status is
defined in a separate memo.

This document is a product of the Message Tracking Protocol Working
Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
